TWO 4 and ONE 3 Stars for Rattrap (The Wyverns #3) by L.M. Somerton #M/M @LMSomerton

28452836

Title: Rattrap (The Wyverns #3)
Author Name & Publisher: L.M. Somerton (Pride Publishing)
Publication Date & Length: February 9th 2016- 65 pages

Synopsis

Teddy Austin has had more than his share of run-ins with local law enforcement. The Wyverns have a reputation to maintain, and Teddy feels it’s his duty to cause havoc whenever possible. Of course, getting arrested means time in the company of Sheriff Adrian Hayder—always a bonus—though Teddy would far prefer to have the sheriff wearing the cuffs.

When The Knights of War MC arrives in Phoenix, Trap orders The Wyverns to get inside information. In order to infiltrate the gang, Teddy must appear to betray his friends and switch his allegiance. Working undercover, however, he confirms what they have all suspected—The Knights of War are a cover for something much more sinister than a hell-raising bunch of bikers, and they fully intend to turn Phoenix into a battleground.

With Sheriff Hayder getting far too close to the truth, Teddy is left with a few problems—how to stop a war, keep his balls intact and ensure the man he loves keeps breathing.

This was a short steamy read. Teddy was a biker who was always getting in trouble mostly to see the hot sheriff Adrian. Teddy goes undercover to find out what’s going on but he’s more worried about Adrian getting involved.  It was good story full of action, but Teddy and Adrian just didn’t seem to click for me.  There was plenty of hot sex but I didn’t feel the connection between the two. Maybe if their relationship was developed they would have made a great couple it just was to rushed.

FourStars

Hmm, where to start with this story?  I didn’t read the previous books, but never really felt lost.  It was slightly confusing when it came to the rival gang, but that might have been because I didn’t know what the dynamic was, other than in this story.

Let’s just say that Adrian and Teddy make an explosive couple.  They are hot and cold, hot oil and chilly water colliding.  I love how Teddy takes charge of the in control Adrian.  Then, Adrian decides that despite his reservations, he needs to do his own sleuthing – putting him in some danger of the rival gang.  Both characters are caught between playing the part of their life that everyone knows and allowing someone in that might be outside their comfort zone.

Then you have Kit – whom I really like and hope he gets his own story.

What it all boils down to is getting the good guys to win.  This story wasn’t terribly in depth in terms of character development, but it had some action, steamy scenes and a connection between the two main characters that was believable.

This is a novella, so it didn’t take long to read even though it’s part of a series. I’m giving it a 3 though because there really wasn’t much to the story. We have Teddy, who is a MC bad boy, but also an undercover cop…? His love interest is the Sheriff, Adrian. These two are hot together, but they really didn’t spend enough time together to make them believable as a couple. Did they even end up as a couple? The ending was more HFN. maybe we’ll get another book of them.
The plot idea was interesting, with the Knights Of War being a racist group bent on mass murdering people, but it kinda fell flat for me. It’s a short book, but it should have been longer to make it more interesting. I liked Teddy, I liked Adrian…I just wish there was more of them together than apart.

5, 4 and TWO 3.5 Star Reviews for The Rules of Love (The Hampton Road Club #2) by Morticia Knight #M/M #BDSM @MorticiaKnight

24013180

Title: The Rules Of Love ( The Hampton Road Club #2)
Author Name & Publisher: Morticia Knight (Pride Publishing)
Publication Date & Length: February 6th 2015- 143 pages

Synopsis

Master Saul is captivated by the beautifully submissive Kenneth and the boy’s love of pain. Unfortunately, Kenneth belongs to Master Preston.

It’s 1926 and as one of the founding members of the Hampton Road Club, Master Saul Liebowitz has enjoyed the charms of many willing submissives over the years. One of the newer submissives to the club has captured his attention more than anyone has in a long time. Kenneth is tall, muscular and also seems to have a greater love of pain than most. If only Kenneth didn’t already belong to another Master.

After Kenneth’s Master died years before, he allowed himself to be taken in by the promises of Master Preston. As time has gone by, Preston has become increasingly crueler to the point where Kenneth fears for his life. They’ve recently joined a sadomasochism club and Kenneth can’t help but yearn for the handsome Master the other boys speak so highly of—Master Saul.

Preston takes things too far one night, and when Saul and his good friend, Master Aaron, do some investigating, they realize that Kenneth might be in real danger. Amidst turmoil at the club over whether there should be rules to keep the boys safe and Preston’s play for power, Saul searches for a way to save Kenneth from what he’s sure is a deadly situation.

Both men fight for what they believe to be the right thing. When they find their way to one another, a wonderful new world opens up to them. But there’s one man out there who refuses to let go of the old ways. Kenneth is his property and Master Preston won’t give him up.

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of violence and dubious consent.

Publisher’s Note: This book is best read in sequence as part of a series but can be read as a standalone.

Kenneth has been abused badly by his master. Saul has seen Kenneth at the club and has been attracted to him for awhile. Saul tries to find away to save Kenneth from his master.

I felt so bad for Kenneth with how he was treated and hurt by that evil man. I was also so happy Saul was there for him and saved him from that horrible situation.

These two men together Saul and Kenneth were so sweet together and there was steam too which was hot between these two men. You also see a lot of the characters from the previous book in this series too which I really loved!

All together I loved how these author wrote these characters and this story and would definitely recommend this book!

~Kara

Book two of the Hampton Road Club series focuses on Saul, the close friend of Aaron from the first book. His love interest is Kenneth, a middle aged sub who doesn’t look like your typical effeminate looking sub. He’s tall, muscular, but shy. I really liked that about this book. I like reading about a Dom/sub relationship that doesn’t follow the normal formula.
Kenneth likes pain, but he’s not into the type of abuse his current Dom is giving him. He’s too sweet for that. I wanted to kick Preston’s butt. Saul went to the rescue though and took Kenneth for himself. They balance each other out pretty well. Kenneth’s situation made Saul realize that he needed to make changes in his club, changes that made sure to protect the subs. Saul made Kenneth feel safer and more confident with himself and his body. His needs. Win/win for everyone.

ThreeandHalfStars

I can’t say I enjoyed this book as much as book 1.  For over the first half of the book it was non consensual sex and harm to Kenneth and Linus.  It was pretty disturbing.
I found Preston to be utterly disgusting and almost didn’t continue reading.
But it did move along to Saul and Kenneth and then there was the amount of caring between master and sub towards the end of the book.  There was a bit of a surprise as to who owned the club, it was a nice turn. I definitely will give book 3 a chance and hope that it’s a little lighter.

~Sherry

ThreeandHalfStars

You can read this as a standalone but if you read the series in order it gives you backstory and gives you the full picture. I liked this book, the phrase “old sport” was used a lot and it drove me crazy at times. As with the first book the story at times was too wordy for me but this book did move at a faster pace. I loved Kenneth, I just wanted to hug him and tell him everything was going to be ok. I loved the connection between Kenneth and Saul, it felt real and made the story more believable. I am looking forward to the next book in the series.

TWO 5, 3.5 and 3 Stars for Mastering Love (The Hampton Road Club #4) by Morticia Knight #M/M #BDSM @MorticiaKnight

25417902

Title: Mastering Love ( The Hampton Road Club #4)
Author Name & Publisher: Morticia Knight (Pride Publishing)
Publication Date & Length:  May 8th 2015- 197 pages

Synopsis

Evan sees a Master who could be his whole world and Ned sees a beautiful boy in need. But shattered trust and broken hearts could keep them apart forever.

Evan landed on his ex-Master’s doorstep after Master Gabriel dumped him for a virgin. He’d hoped Thomas would take him back, but he’s moved on with his new submissive, Linus. Evan has nowhere to go and barely a penny to his name. Fortunately, Master Aaron and his boy, Sam, invite him to stay at their guesthouse. Alone and abandoned, Evan aches for a Master who can give him more—if only he knew what ‘more’ meant.

Master Ned has finally decided to settle down in one place after traveling on the road for years. He’s always loved the Hampton Road Club—it’s a private sanctuary for men such as himself. The roaring twenties might be freer than ever, but the decadence of the sadomasochistic club could put its members in danger if they’re not discreet.

Ned’s on the lookout for an untried boy who’s ready to fully submit to him on a daily basis. In return, he plans to train and care for his submissive. If he can also find love, then his life will be perfect.
After Evan is introduced to Ned at the club, they have an intense encounter that catches them both by surprise. What should lead to a possible future for them as Master and submissive is destroyed when Ned mysteriously casts Evan aside. Evan wonders if he’ll ever be good enough to keep a Master, and Ned fears he may have lost the best thing that ever happened to him.

Shattered trust and broken hearts have to be repaired before Evan and Ned can find their way to each other—if it’s not already too late.

Reader Advisory: This book contains a scene of exhibitionism.
Publisher’s Note: This book is best read in sequence as part of a series.

I have to say I loved this story, not that Evan and Ned were my favorite couple, it’s just I liked their journey of finding each other the best.  This whole series shows how far their club has come, I love how they are trying to improve conditions for the subs.

I felt horribly for Evan, he was hurt emotionally by a previous Master and again when he thought Ned didn’t want him. But through it all Thomas was his friend, which was a nice touch. Evan and Ned worked for me as a couple.  They seemed perfect for each other.

My favorite part of the book was when Thomas had volunteered Aaron for having a lawn party.  I laughed at that it was written so well.

Definitely a very good series to read.

This book was such a good addition to this series!

Evan landed on his EX Masters doorstep after Master Gabriel dumped him for a virgin. I honestly felt so bad for Evan and there were some points in this book where I was not happy with Master Ned and his need to have a untried boy. But finally Ned gives into his feelings for Evan and it was just so beautiful.

Evan and Ned were my favorite couple in this series! They were so sweet together and the steam between these two men was so hot!

I loved the way Morticia Knight wrote these characters in this story and the book was just so beautiful and sweet! Even though there were some hard moments in this book for Evan he comes out of everything that has happened and being kicked when he was down so much stronger.

So I will leave this review with…. I 100% loved this book and would recommend this series!

~Kara

ThreeandHalfStars

You can read this as a standalone but if you read the series in order it gives you backstory and gives you the full picture. When I found out who was in this story I was so excited, I wanted to see Evan get his HEA. I know I always state this but at times this series can be too wordy and move a little slow. This book drove me nuts. Evan and Ned had an instant connection, they both wanted each other but Ned was being stupid and wouldn’t listen to his heart. I would have preferred to see more action between Evan and Ned instead of them both “confused” about their feelings and if the other person wanted them. The book was good but I think it could have been five stars if there would have been more action or a longer story to see more results.

ThreeStar

Ok, and here we have book 4 of the Hampton Road Club series, and I didn’t enjoy it as much as the first 3.  Evan was way too whiny for me. He was also too bratty to the point that I didn’t like him much. He left Thomas, the Dom from the last book, for another Dom who told him lies about Thomas. That same Dom sent him packing when he found himself an untouched sub. I suppose I was supposed to feel bad for Evan, but I think he dug his own hole and needed to lay in it.
I didn’t connect well with the Dom, Ned either. He was so stuck in wanting an untouched sub and basically led Evan on. I didn’t like them for each other. Truthfully, I just wasn’t invested enough with their relationship to care if they ended up with each other or not, which they did of course.

FOUR 4 Stars for The Fear of Surrender (The Hampton Road Club #3) by Morticia Knight #M/M #BDSM @MorticiaKnight @pridePublishing

24528049

Title: The Fear Of Surrender
Author Name & Publisher: Morticia Knight (Pride Publishing)
Publication Date & Length: February 2015- 163 pages

Synopsis

Master Thomas sees a submissive man aching for surrender if only Linus can be convinced not to fear The Hampton Road Club.

Linus never wants to return to Hampton Road after being attacked by a Master there. Even though he aches for the attention of Master Thomas—the one who he’d originally wanted—he isn’t sure he can ever trust another Master not to abuse him again.

Thomas is furious with himself for not protecting the beautiful young submissive whose company he’d enjoyed on a few occasions. He’s relieved that there have been some recent changes to help protect the men who offer themselves at the sadomasochism club. It’s about time to bring Hampton Road into the progressive age of the 1920’s. Now that the new rules are in place, perhaps he can woo Linus into giving him a chance.

As Thomas goes out of his way to be kind to him, Linus wonders if he’s misjudged the Master. He’s still not sure if there’s a future for them. What if he never wants to surrender to another man? When he allows Thomas to teach him the joys of Dominance and submission, Linus discovers that he not only wants to surrender, he wants to be claimed permanently. If only Thomas’ old life doesn’t come back to haunt them and destroy their chance of being together forever.

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of figging and piercing.

Publisher’s Note: This book is best read in sequence as part of a series but can be read as a standalone.

Book 3 started with a small repeat of the ending with book 2.  Linus who was abused in book 2 is actually quite shy.  I just loved how Linus was so sweet and eager to get to know Thomas.  Thomas was very caring. I liked how Linus matured while being with Thomas. Their story was actually very sweet.  So far I liked Aaron and Sam the best but Thomas and Linus are a very close second.

~Sherry

fourstars

Book 3 of the Hampton Road Club series is about Linus. He’s the sub abused by Preston in book 2. Kenneth and Saul saved him. He’s scared to become a sub again cause he doesn’t want to get hurt. How can he trusts Doms, when one hurt him?
Thomas, a Dom at the club has had an eye on Linus for a long while and he blames himself for not acting sooner and making Linus his. This is the usual formula of the delicate sub and the Dommy, but sweet Dom. They were cute, sweet and great together. Thomas didn’t give up and showed Linus that all Dom’s are not like Preston, that jerk. Linus really needed a break and I’m glad Thomas was there for him.
This serious is too cute and too sickly sweet, lol, but sometimes you just wanna read about stories like this.
~Cookie
fourstars

This book was a good addition to this series!

Linus was hurt by Kenneth’s former Master and is now understandable afraid to go to the club. Thomas sees Linus as a man aching for surrender and wants to help him.

So to start of this review I will admit this book did take me awhile to get into at first and I am not really sure why. I did really like these two men together and I did like their characters too. I also loved how you got to see more of previous characters too. So I can not really explain why but this one just did not grab me like the previous books in this series did.

So I will leave this review with… I did like this book, there were just parts of this that did drag for me. I would recommend this series!

As with the previous books the story at times was too wordy for me but this book did move at a faster pace. I loved the fact that Thomas was so patient with Linus but at times even I thought he was moving too slow for Linus, LOL. The feelings seemed more intense in this book, more real and I think that is why I enjoyed it a little more than the previous books. I am looking forward to the next book in the series, I really hope Evan gets his story and happily ever after.

One 4.5 and THREE 4 Star Reviews for Fahey’s Flaw (Kansas City Heat, #9) by Jenna Byrnes #M/M #Cops

28451632

Title: Fahey’s Flaw (Kansas City Heat #9)

Publication Date & Length: January 5th 2016- 115 pages

Detective Wynn Fahey’s son, Connor, is thirteen going on thirty. His recent announcement that he’s gay causes concern for his mother and her new husband, and the parents of the boy he’s been caught in a compromising position with.

When the new five dollar Insanity drug invades Con’s school, the boy is forced to grow up faster than his parents would have liked. Will the love and support of handsome English teacher Reilly O’Keefe be enough to sustain Wynn and Connor, or are they in too deep to scrabble their way out of danger?

This was such a good story about drugs in schools, how the kids handle it and the consequences that come from drugs.

Wynn was the main character and was a cop along with his son Connor who was in high school.  Wynn meets Reilly a teacher and it was instant attraction. I thought Wynn and Reilly’s relationship moved pretty fast, but it seemed to work very well with the story content.  Wynn’s ex wife’s husband was a jerk. Though it did add some conflict to the story it did make the ex wife and Wynn understand each other better.  Other than the major plot of the drugs it was a good story about how family sticks together.

Even though it was a short story I felt that it was complete. I really enjoyed this book and always look forward to reading more by Jenna Byrnes.

This is totally a standalone in this series even though at the beginning it is a bit overwhelming with all the characters being thrown at the reader, once you get past that, I don’t think we see much of any of the other characters from previous books.
I liked that this was a cop book, but it wasn’t so much so that you lose track of the characters… And I can’t help but love that it’s a teacher book, because who didn’t have a crush on a teacher at one point in their life or another so this was fun for me.
There was a lot of insta chemistry, but I liked the way the two men came together even with the evil ex and tween around to be dealt with.
I will say that I felt like the designer drug was sort of not a finished sideline of the book when it had taken up so much of a part of the book so that was a bit of a disappointment for me.

FourStars
This is the ninth book in Jenna Byrnes Kansas City Heat series and I loved it. Jenna Byrnes just draws you into the story and makes you believe. This story deals with primarily drug use in high school thru college and how the main characters deal with it. Wynn and Reilly were absolutely great together and I immediately connected with both MC’s and was amazed with how they dealt with a new cheaper drug that was hitting the schools. Ms. Byrnes also shows how they dealt with becoming involved with each other and again made this insta-love believable. This was a very easy read and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

THREE 4 Star and ONE 3 Star Review for By My Side by Jennifer Wright #M/M #BDSM @_JenWright

28074954

Title: By My Side
Author Name & Publisher: Jennifer Wright (Pride Publishing)
Publication Date & Length: December 15th 2015- 55 pages

Synopsis

Noah has suppressed his urges for other men for years, but when a sexy bartender comes crashing into his life, all bets are off.

Due to his career as a lawyer and his father’s strict ways, Noah has always ignored the side of him that craves the touch of another man, not wanting to upset the calm waters of his life. But when he’s out one night celebrating his friend’s first win in a courtroom, Noah is taken aback by the raw lust that consumes him when he meets Shea. He wants to ignore what he feels for the man, but when Shea introduces a tantalizing side of sex that Noah has been dreaming of, he finds it impossible to keep Shea out of his life.

Shea’s been heartbroken before by a man who wouldn’t come out of the closet for him, and he doesn’t think he can go through that again. Can Noah let go of his fears of coming out to the world? Will the pleasures Shea gives him in the bedroom have Noah seeing what really matters in the long run?

FourStars

Hot, hot, hot. That’s about all I can say. It was short (a little to short) and extremely steamy when Noah hooks up with Shea.  A quick read of a romance where Noah isn’t out yet because of his job and family and he meets Shea, a hot bartender.

They fit well together in the story, Noah and Shea.  But your expectations can’t be to high for this book cause before you blink its over with.  Would have loved to read more about these guys.

But still a nice diversion from your normal lengthy novels.

~Sherry

FourStars

This was a surprise for me. I really liked the authors writing style and her ability to draw me in. This was the first book of her’s I’ve read but I can’t wait for more!
The characters were opposites and that made it a fun book for me to read. I do love angst! Someone not out of the closet and afraid of losing his job while another has already had his heart broken by someone not willing to be out for him.
My biggest problem with the book is that it wasn’t longer and that I felt there wasn’t a great ending to the story and that there were times/things that felt a bit unnecessary especially considering how short the story was.
Renee
FourStars
Wow, I mean WOW. This book was great and a new author for me too. Ms. Wrights writing style was excellent and the characters absolutely amazing. It was clear that Noah and Shea had an immediate connection and I felt it. I love when an author can write and make you feel. I seem to get so much more out of the book when I can feel the characters emotions. So there I am reading the book and low and behold it was ending. This story was too short am I would love to hear more about Noah and Shea.
Lynn

ThreeStar

This was a really short story. Noah basically a closet gay and Shae a man who will never be in the closet again, meet and have an instant attraction. There were so many things that I thought were random or just not needed or were filler for a really short story as it was. Just when things got good it was over and I wasn’t happy with the ending it seemed really abrupt and unfinished. This had the potential to be a really good.

Synopsis

Follow Will & Patrick in this fourth installment of the romantic-comedy serial, Wake Up Married, by best-selling author Leta Blake and newcomer Alice Griffiths!

Will and Patrick have embraced adding hot sexy-times to their fake marriage, but as their emotions deepen, they confront whether or not they want to be more than friends-with-benefits. Freshly free of a restrictive relationship, Will’s not ready for more than exploratory fun. And no matter how Patrick feels about Will, his own difficult past has left him wary of love.

The heat is high (and occasionally kinky) in this episode of the Wake Up Married serial, but Will and Patrick struggle to accept their mutual affection, much less confess it. How long will they fight their feelings?

Episode 4 of 6 in the Wake Up Married serial.

Book 4 and I loved this book.  The story was entertaining, fast paced and very easy to read. More of the adventure by Will and Patrick in their Vegas Wedding.

This time Patrick seems confused about his feelings for Will. Patrick is thinking more about being in love.  Where Will Is talking about having sex and not worrying if he is in love.  It was a total turn around and I loved it.  Patrick tells Will about his childhood and I was just heartbroken for him.

My favorite part was when Patrick said his user name was HottieMcBrainSurgeon.  That was just too funny!

But WOW what an ending, it leaves you hanging and wanting to know what is happening next in these crazy guys life.

~Sherry

FiveStars

This book was such a awesome addition to this series!
This is book 4 in Wake Up Married series and can not be read as a stand alone.

Just like the previous books in this series there was so much humor in this book. Then there was the steam, which can I just say it was so damn hot between Will & Patrick!

There was also the moment when Will finally sticks up for himself to certain people that had it coming for awhile and I loved it! He was so much stronger in this book.

The way Will and Patrick interacted in this book was so sweet and of course so funny too. I have to say Patrick is my favorite character in this series, he is just so snarky and I honestly just love how he is not afraid to say what he thinks. But Will’s character after this book is now closely tied with Patrick’s for me.

I loved the way these authors have written this series and these characters and I can not wait for the next book. Because of course I love these characters and want to read more about them but also that ending OMG!!!!

So I will leave this review with…. I 100% loved this book and would definitely recommend this series!

FourandHalfStars

Another winner from the new duo of Leta Blake and Alice Griffins in their serial of Wake Up Married. The romance between Will & Patrick has really begun to heat up and all I can say is it’s about time. Will and Patrick are clearly made for each other and it’s finally begun to sink in with them even though they are still clearly denying it. It was clear that we are finally getting inside of Will and Patrick heads and I love what I’m hearing. Can’t wait to see what this amazing writing duo have in store for us in Episode 5 of Will & Patrick wake up married.

~Lynn

Excerpt

Wrung out after the long night, Patrick shovels in the eggs and toast he ordered from room service. His mind drifts lazily as he eats, but when he hears the shower turn off, his stomach churns. He hates that his brain can ruin a perfectly good moment with memories that make him twitchy.
“About last night…” Will’s voice cracks slightly.
Patrick’s heart stops.
“Maybe it shouldn’t happen again?”
A sharp, deep pain lances into Patrick and he can’t breathe. It’s so unexpected, this horrible feeling, and he can’t think of anything to say. But hope and lust surge together as Will shoves away from the door. He grabs Patrick so hard it hurts and kisses him until the world shifts under their feet.
Yep, it had happened again. Had it ever. God, their second night in a row of sex had been—
Patrick jerks back to the present as the bathroom door swings open and Will strides out fully dressed in a pair of trousers and a button-up shirt. The eggs churn faster in Patrick’s stomach.
Will sits at the breakfast table. He tests, calculates, and injects his insulin before starting on his cottage cheese on toast. He looks up, fixing Patrick with a resolute gaze.
Patrick dodges the look and pokes his eggs with his fork. “Do we have to talk about it?”
Will takes another bite and chews deliberately.
“Because I don’t want to talk about it.” Patrick’s much more interested in a “don’t think, just do” policy when it comes to sex with Will. He’ll take that over revisiting the surprising pain of Will’s near-rejection the night before.
Will’s brows draw low and he chews for a long, tense moment. Patrick’s heart lurches like a skipping record until Will speaks. “Really? So you think there’s nothing to talk about?”
“Nope.” Patrick’s fork scrapes against his plate. “I don’t see why there would be.”
Will, of course, has other ideas. Like that’s anything new. “Patrick, we had sex again last night. Three times.”
“I know what we did, Will.”
“And?”
“And I liked it. And I don’t regret it.”
Will pulls his lower lip between his teeth. “You really liked it?”
“Puddin’-pop, you were there. Do you doubt you’re the best lay I’ve ever had?”
“The best?”
“Unequivocally.”
Will grins and eats some more of his cottage cheese on toast, joy rising up like the sun on his face. “You too. I mean, you’re the best I’ve had.”
Shocking. Patrick wants an award for not saying that out loud. He reaches out and takes hold of Will’s fingers. “I like being with you. I like what we’re doing and I don’t want to talk about it.”
Will pulls his hand away and scratches his ear uncertainly. “Why?”
“Because I don’t want us to stop.” He clenches his fist on the table and summons the strength to say, “Unless you want to stop?”
Will shakes his head and studies the food. After putting some eggs on his plate and compiling another cottage cheese and whole-wheat toast sandwich, he clears his throat and tentatively meets Patrick’s eye again. “So you think it’s okay if we—”
“Screw without professing our undying love first?”
Will flushes but nods.
“We’re having sex, not committing a crime. Of course it’s okay. Why make it into something it’s not?”
Will butters his toast and carefully doesn’t meet Patrick’s gaze again. This. This is why Patrick doesn’t want to talk about things. “What did I say wrong now?”
Will shrugs and takes a bite of toast. He finishes chewing and swallows. “What would we make it into that it’s not?”
“That’s what I don’t want to talk about.”
“Because you think I’ll say we can’t have sex anymore if there’s no hope of us really falling in love and making a little family together?”
Patrick breaks into a fine sweat. “Won’t you?”
He has no idea what thoughts the tiny hamsters on the wheels in Will’s mind are cranking out, but he can imagine they’re racing overtime as Will gazes at him silently. He feels like he might puke.
Will’s mouth tilts up at the corner. “No.”
“What?” Patrick chokes on his toast and has to grab a swallow of water.
“No, I won’t say we have to stop. We’ll keep on…you know.”
“Having sex.”
Will’s eyes go hot with lust. “Yeah. We’ll keep having sex.”
“I knew you liked it.” He leans forward, smirking. “Now, tell me what you liked best. In detail.”
Will adjusts his napkin in his lap. “I thought you didn’t want to talk about it.”
“I didn’t want to talk about ‘Oh, woe, it was wrong, and I’m still hurting over Ryan, and we’re getting divorced as soon as possible,’ because I know all that.”
Will finishes off his cottage cheese sandwich. “I get it.”
“Tell me all the dirty stuff. I want to hear how much you loved it.”
Will’s smile is soft. “Oh, I loved it.”
